The posting says the company is seeking a "confectionery connoisseur" whose duties would include sampling the company's chocolate, gum and confections -- including several varieties not yet available to the public -- and producing a personalized batch of chewing gum.

The paid intern would be required to chronicle their 8-12 week experience with the company on social media.

The position, which includes a year's worth of candy as a signing bonus, features a few unusual qualifications for an "ideal candidate," including being able to "distinguish all five fruity flavors from the Skittles rainbow in a blind taste-test."

The posting says ideal candidates should also be able to "blow bubbles with chewing gum that are greater than 5 inches in diameter."

"In your application, showcase why you should have the #WorldsSweetestInternship," the website states. "Applicants will be asked to share a creative and social media portfolio during the interview process."
